(PRWEB UK) 23 December 2013
Expat Forum has reported that a survey, conducted by the British Council, has discovered that students from India consider UK universities to be the best for high quality courses, despite rising fees for expat students. The British Council’s study considered the views of over 10,000 young people across India, with the results highlighting the students’ attitudes towards higher education in their home country and abroad, as well as the aspects which contribute to their choice of university.
Results indicated that 61% of students consider the quality of courses to be important while 42% believed it to be the cost of studying overseas, with 43% of participants revealing that they were influenced by the opportunity to receive financial support such as bursaries and scholarships.
According to the Expat Forum report, India provides the largest group of international students in the UK after China, with between 75% and 80% studying for postgraduate degrees. While the US is home to the highest number of international Indian students, the UK follows closely behind in second place. Yet the authors of the study offered the reminder that the figures cannot be taken for granted, with the number of international students declining in the UK and the US following rising costs to study abroad.
As international removals experts who have a wealth of experience in assisting with overseas moves, the team at Interdean follow any news concerning international students. A representative for the firm offered their response to the recent news:
“International students have much to offer the UK, as well as UK students offering plenty to countries around the world, so it is welcome news that a high number of Indian students are choosing to study in UK universities. The results of this research also demonstrate to UK universities how they can continue to cater for international students, with the research revealing that while the UK’s higher education courses are considered to be of a high quality, the cost can be a barrier to many students. We look forward to following news on the number of international students choosing UK universities for their higher education.”
